~About Me…Cindy lee~

Cindy lee

Welcome to my blog…I love to go junkin’…you can find me looking for goodies at thrift shops, junk stores, garage sales, and the flea markets to use in my home. I also love doing machine embroidery for me, my family and friends.

I’ve been crafting and sewing for as long as I can remember. I started my business back in October of 1981 when I did my first craft show and have now decided to retire after 35 years of doing shows.

Thanks for stopping by my blog to visit me.

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I also am hooked on embroidery. I’ve loved it since I got my first sewing/embroidery machine about 13 years ago. I’ve been designing a few of my own designs for the last few years and hope to maybe sale them someday.
    Look forward to chatting with you again soon.

    Hey there Again Cindy,
    you have 2 nice machines…we got hooked last fall when we decided to take a class using the designer SE’s and fell in love…my best friend bought one on the spot for $4800.00…to rich for my tastes..so I then bought a huskystar em10 big piece of crap in my opinion…so I upgraded to a scandinavia 300 then the 400…I would love the SE but my crafting has got to bring me in more money to warrant it..I would love to win the big Diamond..they had a drawing..that would be nice…lol….my mom used to do her embroidery by hand when we were younger and I am going to send her a sweatshirt with embroider all over it..she will be amazed and astounded…that a push of a button does all of this..I would love to see your designs…what other mediums do you embroider on? I would love to see them to get ideas or inspiration…have a wonderful day..”)

    went to the 3 sites and bought something at everyone…I hate you now..:) I am hooked on those prim designs..just wish they had more to fit my 4×4 hoop…but love what I got…oh my best friend is going to be delirious with delight when I show her these…she will hate you too I am sure of it…lol…can’t wait to see your photos etc…man I am so glad you decided to leave me a comment…:)

  • Gina

    isn’t it amazing that just by blogging look at all the wonderful people we have met!!!:) Glad I made you laugh..cause now I am alittle bit poorer….lol…have a good one…;)

  • Gina

    WOW is all I can say..I love the neat ways you used the embroidery..and I LOVE THAT DRESS!!! you did a fantabulous job..what a lot of work..folks just don’t realize what it takes to embroider..sure the machine does it, but you still have to babysit the machine to make sure the thread doesn’t break…etc…thanks for sharing…I am making purses right now..when I am done I will be blogging them…take care…

    I read that you were going to paint your kitchen creamy white with a glaze. I am doing that also. Do you have a picture of yours?

  • Cindy

    Hi Jean,
    Thanks for visiting my blog. I have a few photos of my kitchen with the cabinets painted white with a dark stain rubbed on the top of them…but they actually show up whiter than they really are in the photos. I think it is from the flash of the camera. The pictures are in the post on July 2nd.

    I’ve taken some time off from finishing the kitchen to get items made for my craft show season this fall. I hope to finish it soon and will post photos then and I hope that the antiquing shows up better.

    Hi Cindy, love your blog. Read it all the time. I was at the fair also. So sorry you fell. I bet it was on the far side of the fair because that is where we almost went down !!!! I am interested in coming to the Urbana show. Would love to come see your things in person.. Is that show a prim show??? I have never been there but sometimes go past that town on the way to the Springfield flea market…. Sandi

    HI,thanks for commenting on my blog. I got the little skinny trees on ebay last year. Someone sold a whole lot of them for next to nothing, now of course, I can’t find anymore. I love them.
    Your trip pictures were great, I love the mountains.
    take care,
